South Sudan — Displacement Site Flow Monitoring (August 2019)
During August 2019, IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) conducted 7,298 interviews with households or groups representing 17,379 individual movements into and out of Bentiu Protection of Civilians (PoC) site, Malakal PoC site, Wau PoC Adjacent Area (AA) site and Wau collective centres (Cathedral, Nazareth, St. Joseph, Lokoloko and Masna combined in analysis).
There have been few new entries or permanent exits in August compared to the rest of the year. New entries represented two per cent (371 individuals) and intended permanent exits represented one per cent (92 individuals) of all monitored individual movements. This compares to five and eight per cent respectivelyin January 2019 with new entries making up an even higher percentage of movements in March to May due a significant influx into Wau displacement sites from Jur River as reported on in population count reports. Intended permanent exits have been at only one or two per cent since April in contrast to the average of nine per cent calculated for the period between December 2018 and February 2019.
